  1. Hi, When switching panels they automatically resize according to the content. This is a bit of pain as I can resize one panel for ease of use, click another and it resizes, then clicking the previous one doesn't go back to the size it was. Is there an option to prevent this? Having to resize the panel each time is pretty tedious. Thanks panel_resizing.mov
  2. I have a main artboard which contains my image and within that, a number of smaller artboards which I'm hoping to use to export parts of that image (for frames of an animation), however, the smaller artboards are exporting blank, I guess because the artwork isn't actually in those artboards, it's just in the main one. How do I export whatever those art boards are over?
  3. I've found that it can be difficult to select a particular object on screen, even if I'm really zoomed in. Where is there a setting to change the tolerance? Screen_Recording_2020-02-13_at_16_13_34.mov
  4. Designer 1.7.2, OSX 10.15.1 I have a number of lines/curves drawn with the pen tool, but I'm unable to make nodes join together. I've followed a video tutorial, but for some reason clicking the 'Join Curves' button in the context toolbar does nothing. I've got both objects selected, then selected the two nodes and then hit 'Join Curves' but it just doesn't do anything.
  5. Designer 1.7.2, OSX 10.15.1 (19B88) When using the pen tool, things always aren't constrained to the grid when holding shift. Some things are, others aren't. See attached image. I've tried a number of industry standard modifyers but so far, nothing.
  6. Thanks Yes, I do. I'm still interested to know what you were going to add.
  7. Thanks all. Yes, I've tried that and it's somewhat suitable but doesn't seem to play well with more complex shapes where I need to isolate other areas.
  8. Affinity Photo 1.7.3, OSX Catalina 10.15.1 (19B88) Using the pen tool to create a path, then using the 'selection' option from the context menu. I'm isolating a load of product photos and keeping the curves is kinda important.
  9. After creating a path and then creating a selection from it, the path then disappears from the layers panel. I'd really like to keep my paths. A workaround is to duplicate each path but as I'm working with a dozen paths for hundreds of images, it's just really slowing me down. Am I missing something?
  10. I've noticed that if I have artboards with duplicate names instead of writing files with 'Image-1.png', 'image-2.png' or whatever one of the images is simply overwritten meaning one is missing from the export. I know that the obvious solution is don't use the same names for artboards but I'm working with 100's of boards and some need to have similar names. Inadvertently I sometimes use the same one. Designer should append a number to duplicate image names to prevent this happening. While I'm at it, is there a way to view artboards alphabetically etc. in the layers panel?
  11. Thanks Everybody. It was the baseline grid. I messed with it while trying to familiarize myself with publisher.
  12. I'm having an issue where adjusting the leading (character or paragraph) is only having an effect when I choose more extreme values, say 0pt or 20pt. Apart from that it's not making any difference? Am I missing something?
  13. +1 Unless I'm missing something, a separate artboard tab would be extremely useful.
